J.C. Ryle, Practical Religion: Being Plain Papers on the Daily Duties, Experience, Dangers, and Privileges of Professing Christians
It’s a breath of fresh air to read someone who is not afraid to offend the sensibilities of the lost, calls sin sin, challenges formal Christless “Churchianity” to put up or shut up, and shakes the saved from slumber. His words pierce deeply and convict, and yet are written from an aching heart of a wise pastor and with the spirit of Christ’s love for precious souls facing everlasting “unquenchable fire,” “the worm that never dies,” and “the gnashing of teeth.”
Ryle does not stray one step from the Scriptures — you will not find a iota of self-help feel-good Christianity that is afraid to quote the stronger words of Jesus in order “to reach the world.” On the contrary, he assaults the watered-down religion with all the might of his considerable intellect and vigor. In its place, he calls his readers to the old truth of the Gospel and paints in vivid colors the splendor of the inheritance awaiting God’s children.
Ryle lived one hundred years ago but his words ring true to this day.
